Programming/College Computer

I am about to attend college and I need a Windows desktop computer for certain applications that I will be using that are not compatible with my MacBook Pro. I own an Xbox One so it does not need to have a dedicated GPU. A small form factor case is definitely a must and it looking relatively sleek would be nice. I have never exceeded 200GB of storage so an abundance of storage is not a necessity. I don't exactly have a set budget, however keeping it below $500 would be ideal. Amazon is my favorable retailer because I own Amazon Prime, but I can buy parts from Newegg if they are much cheaper.

I'm eager to see what kind of builds y'all experts will craft! Thank-you in advance!
